Cooking and Food Pornography Photography

There is some real food porn on the internet. I tell you. Sometimes I drool even. Sometimes, it’s actually too much. You know what I’m talking about; I don’t really need to tell you, huh?

After looking at all of those amazing food and cooking blogs, I thought, okay, well even if my pictures suck, there’s only one way to get better. So I’ve been getting into taking photos with my iphone camera when I cook. I checked out this nifty tutorial which got me using the “adjust” feature in the iphoto editing program. It’s pretty easy, even for a non-techie like me!

Last night I made what I’m going to call “Polenta Pizza Pie.” I used this recipe (thanks budgetbytes), added a couple of mild Italian sausages, fresh spinach instead of frozen, and a ton of basil which I had dried myself (it’s more flavorful than dried, but less flavorful than fresh). I used Dutch Goat Cheese (since I’m not eating Bovine Dairy these days).  It turned out great and FH was really happy.

My photo styling and photo editing need some work, but practice will make perfect, or at least closer to it!
